Fotobellissimo: Though this is a Canon post (i use a Nikon System), one of the few factors between the new Canons and the new Nikon's in my opinon is what they already have and don't have rather than what's new.

An example would be Canon's magnificent 50mm F1.2 and despite that we know it's bloody expensive, Most of my pro photog friends use this. The only thing that could beat that beast or anything else was a Noct-Nikkor 1.2 58mm (which im a proud owner of) which is a lens from so many years ago! Costs$$$ but only MF...i don't understand why Nikon would not reproduce this to challenge the Canon knowing it has a legendary status as a lens..

With that said, and keeping with this topic...my point is. I'd rather have a lens of noct-nikkor abilities on any of my nikon cameras than an expensive 'new' camera that boast this and this. Thats why people would look at my pictures or yours. Great equipment is just an advantage over different kind of factors nowadays when you've been doing photography long enough and we know great lens outlasts even great bodies in the long haul...
